The Joint Institute of Global Health (JIGH) is a unified collaboration between Dublin City University (DCU), the National University of Ireland Maynooth (NUIM) and the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) in research and teaching across diverse and complementary Global Health disciplines.


The mission of the Joint Institute of Global Health is to develop, support and undertake collaborative global health research and education among researchers and stakeholders in Ireland and the developing world with a particular commitment to the promotion and practice of social justice in the global health arena.


The aims of the JIGH will be achieved through a series of four targeted Working Groups which will include:
